Description: Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery combines a large casual restaurant and open air rooftop bier garten, with a small experimental nano-brewery, all located right on the Connecticut River in Vermont. We offer an "inspired pub fare" style menu, with everything from small bites for a few bucks to full entrees. Along with one, always changing unique craft beer of their own they offer dozens of guest craft beers on draft and specialty drinks, all in an amazing waterfront location. The unique round building has been restored into a beautiful fire-lit space with a contemporary and industrial vibe. Indoor and outdoor dining, perched above the river, alongside a steel bridge and nestled between the green mountains make the amazing location a "don't miss" on any visit through Vermont.

Really cute place, fun vibe and a cheeky attitude. Can't wait to see this place on a warmer day. any warmer day, we were there during the polar vortex, to take advantage of that amazing deck.

“Great Food, Service, and Atmosphere...!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Hands down, the Whetstone is a great dining experience. The atmosphere is comforting, the service is good and the food is awesome...! No matter what you're in the mood for, fine food or pub eats, this place can do it with style. Oh ya, the beer is good too!

“Good food, service and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We stopped here for a late lunch while on a day trip from Central Mass. on New Year's Eve day. We read the very good reviews here and were not disappointed. My husband had Tim's Awesome Burger - the idea of peanut butter on his burger was just fun enough to make him try it. And he was very happy with his choice. I had the Whetstone tacos, which were excellent. The microbrew beer choices were very good as well. The restaurant/bar area has a sort of ''apres ski'' feel to it, with a large fireplace, concrete floors on one level and large plank flooring on the upper level overlooking the river. We will definitely make this a regular stop when in Brattleboro.

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

We recently stopped on a trip, and had to wait at the bar. It was crowded on a Saturday, and they were doing a phenomenal job handling it. The burger and fries were pretty good. I tried a few beers, and they were ok, but pretty inexpensive beer wise.

“Great Location, Great Food, Great Drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

My husband and I met some friends here for dinner. They recommended this restaurant having been here before. Wow! We are so glad they suggested Whetstone! The Grilled Sirloin Tips were so good, we ordered a second. The Crispy Brie was quite delicious as well. They all ordered the the Whetstone Tacos and enjoyed them. I had a Crazy Happy Waitress (special grilled cheese sandwich) and it was outstanding! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. It is quite popular, so there was a bit of a wait for a table, but we ended staying in the bar area for dinner. We'll be back next time we are in the area!
